A Confusion of Impressions

cuz his voice sounded like ...fuck me like a bitch and until I don't know my own name ...but his body... was like i'm gonna tear the lining outta yo fat ass til you walk in a zigzag.
Why is it so difficult for us to let people reveal who they really are to us? Why must we have impressions about what we see and hear based on past experiences or stereotypes gifted to us by closed minds?

It's my belief that this is what causes us to dress, speak and act a certain way. A way that makes us feel comfortable in our environment of choice or safety in being non-detectable in who we really are. So what difference does the sound of someone's voice or their physique make? When it really boils down to it; it makes no difference at all. Especially once you get to know a person. You'll see who they really are.

Matt 7:2-5 "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged [if we judge with an evil heart or dark intent, His judgment of us will reflect it; if we judge nobly and honestly, His judgment of us will reflect that, too], and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you [if we use extremes or exaggerations or other unfair means, our judgment will reflect it].

Don't be a "Hupokrites" {hoop-ok-ree-tace'} meaning an actor, stage player, a dissembler, pretender.

You have to search for the truth in those we encounter. How wonderful a world it would be if we all felt free to be who we are without fear.

Oh that man was fine though. He just confused me. So I guess I'll find out who he really is in the near future.

Being a boring nerd myself, I enjoyed this post. I don't know, in so many ways it just hit a home run with me and my various experiences, especially those of late....

Given my experience in the world of gay nothing suprises me any longer. So I am rarely taken back except for the old switch-a-roo! This where you meet a dude online or in person and initially they may have a masculine voice and later the girl comes out when they get comfortable. Mind you that usually happens in time. Most recently it took three weeks for the girl to come out...LOL

Insightful, as usual. It is true that society in general creates a mentality among many same gender loving men of color that is not conducive to honesty. When you throw dem legs up... you'll know what is real... Mmmm. Enjoy.

when i read the 1st line, i had to check and make sure i was at the right blog! what a great way to draw us in. at any rate, this post resonated with me. i'd been thinking the same thing about how great it would be if we could really just be ourselves at all times.

Good post. It really is hard for some us to accept ourselves and even harder to others as they are.
